******* PRESIDENTIAL 1995 FEDERAL DESIGN ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS Design and government are natural allies. Both seek to serve the people in meeting their fullest potential and in helping the nation achieve its highest aspirations. A restructured economy, rapidly advancing technology and increasingly diverse social and cultural environments combine to make our v/orld complex and difficult to understand. Good design can bring clarity and order to everyday life. It is a universal presence which impacts everyone. As the federal government responds to changes in society, technology, culture, and the economy, design can be an integral part of the process. It can illuminate the reinvention of our government - helping it operate internally more smoothly and efficiently, and making it more understandable and user-friendly to its citizen customers. Federal Design Achievement Awards illustrate some of the effective ways that the combination of art and science in design are serving both government and society. This year's projects demonstrate the strategic value of design in meeting environmental challenges, improving communities, educating and inspiring our citizens, solving human problems and advancing the cultural life of the nation. They are a tribute to the finest in our federal agencies and to designers whose vision, creativity and commitment are making government better able to fulfill its responsibilities to the people it serves. The National Endowment for the Arts is proud to honor these 11 projects and salute the federal agencies and designers who have improved the lives of so many Americans.
